You know the Men’s Warehouse commercial? Pretty sure everyone could say it with me: “While everyone is looking at her…She’s looking at him.” I think it’s every bride’s hope that when she does look at her groom, he looks like Peter did on his wedding day. Yes, Peter is handsome, but more so where I’m going with this is what bride doesn’t want her groom to shed a tear or two when he first sees her? It’s as if the love can’t be contained any more and the only further expression is for love to leak out into tears. To be able to witness such a love, and even more than see it, but to capture it, there’s few moments like it. That my friends is why I say in the end, it doesn’t truly matter where we take photos or if we align you to some pose you saw on Pinterest, there’s no great emotion that you want to bottle up, and save forever than when you officially choose the other; forever. On the days where you aren’t feeling your best, going back to that memory and knowing that the other person out of everyone on the planet, chose you. Didn’t have to. But chose to! And on the days where life is cruising on by and we forget to count our blessings, may you come across this moment, and be reminded of what a jewel in life you have merely in having the other person in your life. Peter & Julia, may these images be memories captured for the good days and the more difficult. Come back to them often and be reminded of what a sweet love you have within each other. Congratulations!!
